If it is a 16 x 19, it isn't a Pro Tour 280/630.

Not much incentive for Head (or TW) to do this from a business perspective. They will just be robbing sales from their other players rackets. But, keep dreaming.

Who knows? Since the 20th anniversary of the frame's introduction will be arriving soon, maybe they will re-paint an existing frame blue and sell it as an anniversary edition. Perhaps, what they should do, is market them as PT57's for consumers and sell them for $500+ a pop. But, again they would just be cannibaliizing sales of the existing players racket line so what do they really gain?

BTW, high modulus Twaron (aramid fiber same a Kevlar) is still readily available. I have plenty of old flexible graphite frames that feel great and have no aramid fiber at all. You guys do understand marketing, right? Kevlar and Twaron are like so 20 years ago marketing-wise. It would have to be AeroBioBLXNanoAirGelSuperDuperTwaron nowadays .
